Kendall Jenner brushed aside the controversy she faced for throwing a huge 25th birthday party over the weekend as she shared more images from the Halloween-themed bash to Instagram on Monday evening.
The supermodel channelled Pamela Anderson from 1996’s cult classic Barb Wire in a leather leotard and fishnet tights as she posed up a storm for the photos, as well as a Boomerang clip which showed a friend cheekily grabbing her bottom.
While all attendees and staff were required to have a COVID-19 test before entering the event, sources have claimed employees at Harriet’s Rooftop in West Hollywood’s 1 Hotel felt ‘uncomfortable’ as 100 guests reportedly refused to wear face masks.

According to The Sun, an insider said: ‘Kris and the entire family were well aware of the LA CDC rules and chose not to follow them. Because the party was on an outdoor deck, they felt they were doing their party in being safe.
‘But there was no social distancing, no masks besides the staff and over 100 people. The staff were under the impression it would be handled safely, no one felt comfortable.
‘They knew this party was going to be a bad look and they did not care. The family was openly talking about it before the party and debating how to best handle it. They decided to just go through with it and have a good time.’
The soirée – which saw the likes of Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith and Winnie Harlow in attendance – came just weeks after Kim Kardashian was met with criticism for flying her family and friends to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday.

‘Whenever we have a gathering – no matter how big or small – no matter, you know, whether it’s five people or 25 people, you know, or 20 people, we have, like at Kendall’s, everyone got tested before they walked in the door and they had to wait, you know, a half an hour until the testing was, the results were in.’
The businesswoman insisted she ‘can’t control’ the online pushback, as many social media users said the famous family were flouting coronavirus rules.
She added: ‘We do what we can, we try to follow the rules. And then if people are, you know, they’re commenting and they’re being critical, I can’t control that – I just can control how we behave and, you know, try to do the best we can.’
Host Andy – who tested positive for the virus earlier this year – said he underwent a multi-step, coronavirus-friendly process on a recent visit to their home.
The presenter, 52, explained: ‘I will say we, we did something together a month or two ago, and the protocols to getting, it was at one of the girl’s houses, I was sent to a location on the way to the house I was tested.
‘And they said, if you get to the house and the gate opens, that means you tested negative. ‘A half hour later, and that gate went open. I was like, all right, it’s all good. But yeah, you guys are, you guys are quite, you guys are quite careful.’
